Howdy All,

I have no ideas as to where to possibly look for an answer to this.

But of course we have all seen satellites, crosing the night sky. and 
seen them in binoculars. and even ever more rarely while using a 
telescope viewing something in the sky happen to have one of these 
things go zipping past.

But a buddy of mine was viewing Saturn the other night, and he spied 
something moving. very small and faint. It was almost like a moon of 
Saturn itself, but of course these do not move so fast you can see them 

This was moving in the same plane and directions of the moons. at a 
estimated speed of about 0.02 degrees a minute.

It was passing right through the field with Saturn.

Saturn was located at.
